To me, that seems reasonable. Though it does have an impact on the 2017 cap, I would think that the Lopez contact is going to be thoroughly moveable once we see what Biyombo, Noah, etc. get this offseason.
If the goal is to perhaps make the 1st round of the playoffs and get off the hook on tough decisions on Rose and Noah, this is a good move.
I think, based on what I think managements' goals are, its a good move.
If you are a Bulls fan interested in seeing the Bulls win the NBA Championship, its not really much of a move.
There is no doubt that Lopez seems like a good contract.
